Girls Inc. of the Valley has raised nearly $70,000 to date from our Spirit of Girls 2021 event, which will help support our ongoing program needs. The event was held on Thursday, May 6th, 2021, with the following notable women who attended: Senator Elizabeth Warren, Former NASA Astronaut, Dr. Cady Coleman, Mount Holyoke College Leadership Fellow and Political Figure, Carmen Yulín Cruz, Actress, Tequilla Whitfield, WWLP Weeknight Anchor, Ciara Speller, and Girls Inc. President & CEO, Dr. Stephanie J. Hull.
Girls Inc. of the Valley has had to opt for safer, virtual options, which is why this year’s Spirit of Girls event was held 100% virtually. Attendees heard directly from girls, staff, and notable celebrities, regarding the importance of celebrating her place at the table. This year’s event was held on Thursday, May 6th, 2021 from 8-9am.
To view the entire 40 minute program, or to see clips from the show, check out our YouTube Spirit of Girls Playlist.
